. there are a couple of issues that remain to be resolved, but for the most part he has now done all that the pentagon can do to offer benefits to same-sex military families. what stands in the way today is the defense of marriage act. that's what's preventing charlie's wife, karen, and their daughter from receiving a substantive amount of benefits that would make their lives so much easier going forward. >> how are karen and the family doing? charlie was valiant in her battle against breast cancer, and also valiant on the frontlines of marriage equality and the battle for service members to get the equity that they deserve. how are they holding up, and have they heard this news from you? >> she was a hero. you're right. thomas, she was a hero in the truest sense of the word. she gave the last fullmer of her devotion to this fight for equality, for her own family first. karen and casey are doing as well as can be expected. i know that they appreciate the support that they have received from service members and allies, gay and straight, all around the country in these days. i think that they're encoura

regularity. look for citrucel today. . ... bill: so the pentagon's top brass now delivering a stark warning to lawmakers. put the brakes on billions of dollars in spending cuts or put america's security at risk. those cuts, set to take effect at the end of the current meant and military leaders want congress to, at the very least, they want congress to delay the reductions. >> i testified last august to the consequences of sequestration. if it was to occur and now the wolf's at the door. >> this would be the steepest, biggest, reduction in total obligating authority for the defense department in history at a time when i will personally attest to the fact it is more dangerous than it's ever been. >> on a scale from 1 to 10 one being the least dangerous to our country, ten being the most dangerous, how dangerous is sequestration in terms of the safety of this country? >> well, i'll take a shot at that, senator. you know, from where i sit today, it sure feels like a ten. somebody, some think-tank around town might want to negotiate me down to an eight but it is really serious. bill: not a lot

to be in charge at the pentagon. the showdown over chuck hagel's nomination, blocked by republicans until of presidents day break. very rare to filibuster a cabinet pick. i want to show you what john mccain said on fox. he said, there's a lot of ill will towards senator hagel because when he was a republican, he attacked president bush mercilessly and said he was the worst president since herbert hoover, said the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war. is this hagel fight about policy or is it about a political payback? >> this is all about politics. when you listen to that quote from john mccain and you watch the way he and his colleagues conducted himself, they look like an infomercial for anger management therapy. it was truly nothing more than a grudge match. we have almost 70,000 soldiers in combat in afghanistan representing us, fighting for our country and also protecting each other. we need to have a strong figure coordinating the pentagon. and the tactics that you see mccain and the republicans engaging in clearly undermine the next secretary of defense who they all ac
in afghanistan coming to the fore and you need someone in the pentagon doing this. it can be seen as a nuisance in that the president want to be talking about his agenda, which is the gun control, immigration, things that people can get done. you have, of course, this sequester and the ongoing issue of the spending situation and taxes. so i think these are the things that the president wants to be talking about. he's going to be on the road talking about gun control. so the question is, will he have to be talking about this to put the pressure on republicans to get moving on his appointees. >> i want to bring in congresswoman karen bass. >> good morning. >> what do you think the republican motivation is for delaying the nomination? >> i think senator mcclain was perfectly clear when he said that they are still mad when senator hagel gave testimony and was negative towards president bush. i think this is a vendetta. i think this is a holdover from the past and it's making the united states look very bad. what are our allies around the world thinking about us right now? >> well, i think there are

the government watching? >>brian: the government will provide life lock for the pentagon, which we offer now is some kind of protection because we don't want all our secret cables to be exposed by idiots like the one we just had -- >> that's different from what the president did the other day. the government has an obligation to protect the pentagon. the government does not have an obligation to protect you or fox news or me or "the new york times." so what's the government going to do? the government is going to share information with major internet providers. and pretty soon it's going to say to the internet providers, all that information we gave you about us, we now want information about you. we want to know about kilmeade's e-mails. we're worried about him. we want to know who he's pha*eulg -- e-mailing so we can keep him safe. baloney. protect the government, but leave the rest of us with privacy. if you're going to interfere with the internet, should it be done by the command of one person -- the president -- or should it be done after great national debate and the congress? >>gretch
